Owl Creek Ceramics was really wonderful this morning. Dyna has designed some great picture frames, there were lots of ornament / necklace pieces, and a sunset plate and stand that was stunning. I picked up a few small pieces for gifts. Dyna showed me her new keyhole garden. I am so envious! The next sale dates are Saturday May 5th, 9-5pm and June 16th, 9-5pm. Definitely worth the trip.
Then it was on to the Belton Farmers Market. It’s on Nolan Creek behind the Gin (downtown). It’s very small and only a few vendors, but I was fortunate to meet the Soggy Bottom Goat Farms people. Although I’ve not generally been a fan of a lot of goat cheese (because usually it’s too strong), I just don’t think I can live without their Chevre, it’s amazing. You participate in “shares” and they provide cheese or milk. Then there was Walker’s Honey from Rogers. The honey is oh so good.
I was going to eat lunch at my favorite Mexican place in Belton, but I got my Mexican fix at Rodeo restaurant in Gatesville the other night, so I decided to go for lemon ricotta pancakes at Megg’s in Temple. There’s never a time I don’t need to go to Natural Grocer in Temple, so it was on the way (sort of)! Before I go on, let me just say Rodeo was very good, and I didn’t have my camera, so no picture of the shrimp fajitas, you’ll have to take my word for it – order them, they’re awesome. Now, back to Megg’s. After I got over my disappointment for the pancake batter not having made the cut today, I ordered a roasted beet salad with goat cheese and candied pecans – yum.
It didn’t turn out to be a stargazing night, so no Meyer Observatory. Maybe next month.
Here’s a couple of events you might be interested in for Saturday, April 21:
Tehuacana Creek Winery is having a wine and cheese festival.
The Bloomin’ Temple festival will be going on.
